We helped the construction industry to reduce the Green House Gas (GHG) footprint of concrete through demonstration projects and the transfer of knowledge.

Key projects included:

  • EcoSmart Concrete: reducing GHG emissions in construction through the replacement of Portland cement by Supplementary Cementing Materials (SCMs) in concrete. Project now completed.
  • SOS: A software tool to optimize the use of EcoSmart Concrete. Project now completed.
  • UAE: Transferring High Volume Supplementary Cementing Material (HVSCM) Technology to the Emirates, a project supported by Canada.
  • China: Transferring HVSCM knowledge to China, a project under the Asia-Pacific Partnership (AP7).

All these projects have been successfully completed. Nowadays, the use of SCM in concrete has become widely accepted.
